Thanks to the public release of the 1.0-8174 drivers earlier today, so far we have previously covered the hardware and software aspects of Linux SLI as well as an in-depth examination of the Rel80 driver performance under Linux using a GeForce 7800GTX and our standard set of gaming benchmarks. At hand now, however, is what many of you have been dieing to hear and that is the NVIDIA SLI results under Linux using the official 1.0-8174 drivers. Although there are a few buggy areas with the drivers, the SLI benefits reached as high as a 294% improvement over a single-card configuration!
Two days after the release of NVIDIA's GeForce 6800GS, the folks over at XGI Technology have finally unveiled their first PCI Express offering - the Volari 8300. For over a year, there have been rumors floating around the Internet in regards to what XGI could bring fourth into their next-generation products and whether they would be able to take ATI and NVIDIA head-on. With us today we have some of these answers along with information that was once deemed confidential in regards to the XG47 GPU.
Although the NVIDIA 7800GTX has a definitive advantage over the 6800GT, the GeForce 6800GT remains a respectable card for enthusiasts not wishing to shell out nearly $500 USD for a graphics upgrade. With us today we have the eVGA GeForce 6800GT 256MB and will see just how well this card can fare through overclocking and just how the card can fare against a 7800GTX in a dual-core environment.
Today, is a rather special day for GeForce 7800GTX Linux owners as we can finally expect some new drivers from NVIDIA that fix the poor performance issues. Although these new 1.0-7675 drivers continue to lack some of the new antialiasing modes, and SLI (Scalable Link Interface), supported by the GeForce 7 series they do come with a hefty amount of changes. In this article, we have new benchmarks to demonstrate the areas that the driver improved, and those that have not been affected. Continue on for this exclusive 1.0-7675 testing.
When it comes to 3D gaming on Linux, it's unfortunate, but there are very few options available due to a lack competitive display drivers and games with native Linux ports. Today, however, we have the honor of presenting NVIDIA's recently released G70 VPU performance under Linux! Read on with this rare opportunity as we hit the NVIDIA GeForce 7800GTX 256MB with a swarm of benchmarks and we actually conclude with a dissenting opinion about this card due to an unfortunate driver situation.
If eleven pages and over 130 pictures isn't good enough for you, for the first day of Computex Taipei 2005 coverage, we're back today with a bit of information regarding XGI's upcoming PCI Express VPUs, the Volari 8300 and 8600 series.
Although there are endless varieties of NVIDIA overclocking utilities for use in Microsoft Windows, when using Linux, it's a bit of a different story. In this article, we'll share our NVIDIA Linux overclocking successes and failures as we load LinuxHardware's NVClock on a Prolink 5900XT, Gigabyte 6600GT, Leadtek 6600GT, and even a Riva TNT2.
